Unknown Realm: The Siege Perilous Update #26

The new post-funding Kickstarter update for the old-school RPG, Unknown Realm: The Siege Perilous showcases some new artwork and a couple of music tracks by Chris Huelsbeck. It also talks about the in-game backer content. An excerpt:

In-Game Backer Content

We're ramping up production on some of the in-game content rewards. We’ve sent out surveys for backers who have basic NPC portraits and we’re impressed with the photos we’ve received from them so far. You guys are going to make some great characters in the game! Plus it's really fun for us to put faces with names for at least some of our backers. :)

We decided to offer our NPC portrait backers some extra customization options besides just creating a portrait in their likeness. Now they also get to participate a little more in the design process by selecting from a list of possible occupation choices and suggesting a name for their NPC. In case you are curious, here is the list of possible occupations for our NPC portrait backers[...]

Surveys for those of you with mountains and tombstones will be sent out later this month, followed by surveys for backers with more detailed in-game content (mercenaries, tavern owners, etc) later this summer.


For our pen and ink bestiary, Bruce and Raf are working hard to bring back that old school monster manual feel. Some of you guys may know exactly what we’re talking about. ;-) Our goal is to create a bestiary that strikes the right balance between familiar monsters we all know and love and new monsters you haven't seen before.
